"White Plains Patch" featured the Elisabeth Haub School of Law in "Pace Law School To End Use of Plastics in Cafeteria"

WHITE PLAINS, NY — The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University today announced numerous measures that will make its White Plains campus one of the greenest in the region and nearly eliminate the use of plastic in its cafeteria and other areas of campus. As of last week, the Law School was using paper straws instead of plastic and students were using china and metal flatware in the cafeteria. In addition, at all of its programs, the school will not use paper or plastic products and will provide water-filled bubblers rather than individual plastic water bottles.

"For decades, the Elisabeth Haub School of Law has been a pioneer in the field of environmental law and home to a nationally recognized environmental law program," said Dean Horace Anderson. "I am so pleased that today, we are ensuring that we continue to lead the way by taking important measures to ensure that our campus is more sustainable than ever."
